Hello all!
I have a serious problem with a program that my job uses. It is a virtual machine, which allows me to run a separate "machine" within my own. They use this so my personal side of my pc doesn't interfere with the business side, and vice versa. Well, I have downloaded the files several times now, and they appear to dl just fine. Until I run the setup.exe. Then I get an error "1334" every time. I have seen some forums online about this issue, but none that were helpful. The error tells me that it could be a network problem, or a problem with the package. The package comes in .cab files, and each time I re download the package, a different cab malfunctions. My trainer thinks it could be my security, so I disabled it and re did the download. No good. I worked with tech support til almost 1am last night to no avail. I was informed that if I could not figure out what was wrong with my system, or obtain a different system, my job may be at stake. Can someone help me please??

Can you be more specific as to what virtual machine, where you downloaded from, and what security may be interfering.

The virtual machine is called VMware, and I'm clueless as to what the problem is. I just keep getting that error, and the error says that it could be related to a network problem. I dl'd it from my employer's site, so I can't share the address.

I would check event viewer to see what additional information may be provided that coincides with your VMWare install error.

What I am able to see as a recurring theme with that error number is a potential bug in InstallShield.

As an example:

I had error 1334 on msi-installscript projects created from InstallShield DevStudio 9. I have had many tests and I think this is a bug from InstallShield, because looking at all the information on the project (even in direct editor) all seems correct. The uncompressed releases I have works correctly, but not the compressed ones.


With the limited information you provided, thats the best I can do.
